Fodor's Review

Even expatriate New Yorkers have been known to (collective gasp!) prefer Montréal's light, crispy, and slightly sweet bagel to its heavier Manhattan cousin. The secret? The dough is boiled in honey-sweetened water before baking in a wood-burning oven. With coffee and smoked salmon, these bagels make a great breakfast, or a snack at any time of the day. Or, for a novel experience, try the rosemary and sea salt bagels. Although the Mont-Royal branch has a large dining area, the original location—263 rue St-Viateur Ouest, in Mile End—doesn't. Visitors should nonetheless pay a visit, if only to admire the bakers at work, expertly inserting fresh dough in the wood-fired brick ovens, which have been operating since the opening in 1957. Another bonus: the Mile End location is open 24/7.
